Description Daniel Roesen 2001-03-22 23:46:32 EST
Using qa0322 tree.

Static IP configuration, entering "alexis.entire-systems.com" as host FQDN
in installer.

[root@alexis /root]# hostname
[root@alexis /root]# fgrep hostname /var/log/boot.log  
Mar 23 05:40:28 alexis rc.sysinit: Setting hostname localhost.localdomain: 
[root@alexis /root]# fgrep HOSTNAME /etc/sysconfig/network 
[root@alexis /root]# grep -v '^#' /etc/hosts		localhost.localdomain localhost		alexis.entire-systems.com

Any ideas what's going on? Network config is ok. Installer ifconfig "up"s
the interface in "Performing post-install setup" phase. From what I'm
seeing the install kernel loads the TLAN driver fine (machine is a Compaq
ProLiant 1600R with on-board TLAN NIC).
Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-08-10 14:04:02 EDT
The initscripts set the hostname to the reverse resolution of IP of the first
network card that comes up *during boot time*, if and only if the current host
name is localhost.localdomain.

The final result is working for you, yes?
